Stadium to the Sea.
Say just those four words, and runners across the United States will immediately know what you•re referring to: the iconic course of the Los Angeles Marathon, which is set for its 31st edition on February 14, 2016.
The Los Angeles Marathon has always been about much more than an invitational race for elite runners over the city’s streets. Since its inception in 1986, it has offered opportunities for involvement for athletic expression at all levels, for giving back to the community and for celebrating the unique nature of the communities all over the Los Angeles region.
Rebuilding Together has participated as one of the event's Official Charities each year since 1997. During that time runners have raised funds to make home repairs and modifications for elderly and/or disabled homeowners to continue living independently. Rebuilding Together volunteers, with these funds, continue to make homes safe and healthy for needy homeowners all-across Southern California.
